Oh, I didn’t get this posted on Friday morning! I thought I did. Sorry!
My husband’s birthday was this past Monday. He said he didn’t need anything, and I believed him. We have everything we need! So I bought him a bottle of Limoncello (it’s spring!). No longer do we feel the need to show our love for each other with purchases. We’d rather have time together, because time is the most precious commodity.
A couple of weeks ago, I met my friend Lori and bestowed upon her a few items from my ‘former life’ as a fraud investigator. The apex of my professional career was being a Certified Fraud Examiner, president of the local chapter, and Regent for the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. But now I write novels!
So I gave Lori a few ACFE padfolios, and this!
It used to hang on the wall of my office, and even though I had nothing to do with the investigation of Providence’s former mayor, I loved this poster. If you’re not local, you can read about him here.
Little by little, I’m finding it easier to not hold on to things. Things are not memories, or emotions. I know my journey will not end with the ‘Week Fifty-two’ post.
